Now in its sixth year of participation, UNC Charlotte has added to (and greatly expanded) its Science and Technology Expo. The Expo remains the University’s largest North Carolina Science Festival (NCSF) event, and it is the festival’s grand finale. An ever-expanding set of activities, including robotics, rocketry, virtual people, live animals, lab experiments, explosive chemistry, exotic plants, fire engines, race cars, boats and drones. The event is for the science-curious of all ages, featuring more than 100 hands-on activities and presentations in chemistry, physics, geology, computer science, engineering and biology developed by University science and technology departments and labs. The UNC Charlotte Science and Technology Expo will be located on the quad across from the Popp Martin Student Union and adjacent to Halton Arena. The event is free and open to the public, and all campus parking is free on Sundays (the Student Union Deck is the recommended parking venue.) Festivities are scheduled from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, April 23 (rain or shine).
